Making qadha of missed Salaahs and Fasts

Q: If someone has not prayed nor fasted sincerely and constantly for many years and has repented upon this, what should they do in terms of the missed salaahs and sawm?

A: He should sincerely repent to Allah Ta'ala for committing these grave sins and make a firm resolve that he will never repeat this in the future. Thereafter he should immediately commence making up for all the missed Salaahs and Fasts of the previous years.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
